          Capita signs contract to deliver Congestion Charging Scheme

                            for Transport for London

The Capita Group Plc ('Capita') announces that it has today signed the contract
with Transport for London ('TfL') to administer the new Congestion Charging
Scheme ('the Scheme') for London.  The confirmation of the contract follows
Capita's appointment as preferred bidder in December 2001 and a period of public
consultation. The contract is worth approximately £230 million (NPV) over the
first 5 years of operation of the Scheme and has a potential 2-year extension.

Capita will deliver and manage the customer services infrastructure.  This
includes multi-contact customer service centres which will enable payment
through telephone, web and IVR (interactive voice recognition), the back office
administration processes and the retail network to enable payments to be made at
retail outlets, such as shops, kiosks and petrol stations.

During the period of negotiation with TfL, Capita has continued with system
development and testing. The Scheme is due to come in to operation on 17
February 2003.
